Take Action: Protecting Reproductive Rights Here in MA

Yesterday, in a win for reproductive freedom, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a Louisiana law that was designed to close abortion clinics and cut off access to care. This decision affirms that people should not be forced to jump through medically unnecessary hoops to access basic medical care.

But Louisiana isn't the only state with barriers to care. In Massachusetts, young people seeking abortion are forced to go to court to plead their case to a judge, and families who receive a lethal fetal diagnosis later in pregnancy must travel across the country for abortion care.

That's why the Massachusetts Legislature needs to pass the ROE Act this session. The ROE Act (S1209/H3320) will make sure that everyone, regardless of income, age, or insurance, can receive necessary abortion care.

Can you email your state legislators today to ask them to priortize the ROE Act?

This is an equity issue. History shows us that wealthy white women have found ways to get abortion care, no matter the barriers.. Women of color, especially Black and brown women, LGBTQ+ people, and people with low incomes, are disproportionately impacted by the political games that corrode abortion access. The Commonwealth can remove harmful barriers to care, support our health care providers, and be a true leader on reproductive freedom by passing the ROE Act. 

Please contact your lawmakers today to ask them to lead Massachusetts forward by passing the ROE Act.
